More than 90 Million Americans have experienced a balance disorder and 35% of people over the age of 65 will fall each year. That number increases to 50% for people over the age of 85. Falls account for more than half of all accidental deaths among the elderly however there is a treatment option available for dizziness or disequilibrium which can prevent 30-40% of all falls.

Balance training can successfully treat most types of balance disorders. The therapy consists of special exercises that are provided by a licensed clinician. Some of the procedure we incorporate into your program include:

     - Customized Balance Retraining Exercises

Our goal is to eliminate or reduce your symptoms and help you function normally in your daily activities. Balance training is provided in convenient sessions, one to three times a week depending upon your specific condition.

Imbalance and disequilibrium may be successfully treated so you do not have to live with the fear of falling. Restoring balance in your life is simple, painless, and is covered by Medicare and most insurance.
